Nothing much is happening here at the moment, so I figured I could make a list of Lime’s favourite films. We sat together and wrote them all down, at which point I discovered that we’ll need two lists: one focusing on ‚Live-Action‘ and another on Animated films (coming soon).
So here it goes, in no particular order ^_^ (The links all go to the respective IMDB page)
- Batman (1966)
Silliest film ever. So much bad acting, but you gotta love it.
„Some days, you just can’t get rid of a bomb!“
2. Pirates of the Caribbean – Trilogy (2003 – 2007)
We don’t like the 4th one very much, so the first three it is. And we love those A LOT!
At World’s End: the fight between Will Turner, Norrington and Captain Jack Sparrow, involving a huge water wheel…
3. The Italian Job (1969)
This was particularly a favourite when Lime was around 2-3y old. She watched it aaaaaall the time (as well as Marley & Me, see below). We recently saw it in the outdoor cinema, and she still liked it, but wasn’t quite as captivated.
„You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!!!“
4. Marley & Me (2008)
When this came out, it was e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e and I hated it. But a few years on, and I thought, let’s try it. It’s got a dog and Jennifer Aniston…it might be nice for Lime. She loved it. I loved it. Still do.
Will have to rewatch, it’s been a while
5. Liar Liar (1997)
We are huge Jim Carrey fans in general, but Lime chose this as her favourite
6. Lord of the Rings – Trilogy (2001 – 2003)
You have no idea how happy I am that Lime has fallen in love with Middle Earth as much as we have. I think she’s a bit more into The Hobbit than LotR, but that’s likely because we’ve watched those films more often.
She can’t think of one.. so I’m going to pick one for her…
7. The Hobbit – Trilogy (2012 – 2014)
We. LOVE. The Hobbit! There’s a rule in our house: if you sing it (any of the songs) you gotta watch it! :p (Not really, but it’s a close one)
Bifur, Dwalin, Bilbo, Bofur and Óin
Gandalf and Radagast meeting in the Ancient Tombs of Rhudaur (High Fells)
„…one of a number. One of Nine.“
8. Star Wars: Force Awakens (2015)
Personally, I’m not a Star Wars fan, but I do enjoy this last one. Lime seems to enjoy it too, so it made it on the list.
…and the bit just after, when BB8 ‚points‘ to the tool Rey is pointedly pointing to.
9. Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (1971)
A favourite in this house, though not mine (except for a couple of scenes)
Apparently this one… (also a good impression of Lime herself)
10. Transformers – All of them! (2007 – present)
Yesssss.. we love Transformers movies. They’re loud and a bit dumb, but damn they’re fun! (Optimus Prime on a DINOBOT… named Grimlock!!!!
When the guy finds Optimus Prime… (I chose the very first time)
Sam Witwicky and future girlfriend Mikaela Banes meet Optimus Prime
And that’s it. What are your kids‘ favourite films?
